OK I’m a foodie but I have a soft spot for KFC. I’ll admit it. So when somewhere does deep fried chicken, LFM is there! So we find ourselves in hipster-ville Haggerston where Chicks n Sour have recently opened. Most of the dishes are based upon deep fried chicken, priced around £10 for 2 pieces – expensive compared to the KFC benchmark but oh so worth it! Crisp and tasty batter, succulent chicken and interesting accompaniments like pickled watermelon. The soft whippy ice-cream desert was a bit of a let down compared to the mains.
Chicks n Sour is not really the place to bring a baby (Perhaps older kids). The venue is really laid back and the staff were lovely to our baby, it’s just that the venue is small, the clientele are young hipsters and the music blares out (fortunately our baby loves reggae music and we brought our own high chair and left the buggy at home – she had a great time!).
